VGArabia: Ubisoft said it before and now, Max Beland the creative director of Splinter Cell: Conviction has reconfirmed it once again: Splinter Cell: Conviction isn't coming to the PS3.
the demo was terrible and looks like the game will suck as well. they need to make the new splinter cell better.
agreed, its not a bad game at all, its just not like the traditional splinter cell series which i think crippled this game, if they only stuck to their STEALTH elements MORE it looks like it would be better, enemy ai was cliche, predictable, the framerate was good, the graphics were good, but the gameplay compared to other splinter cells, well...it dosent match, this splinter cell is a spin off.
Plus the demo wasnt really that bad. Short but still fun enough to make me giddy for release. It did feel a bit like other TPS type of games like gears, batman AA and UC. I liked it and am betting UBI will spice it up and call it something flashy to fit in on the ps3 (at some point).
The co-op looks like it's got plenty of stealth and also looks like it'll be a blast to play through.
Well it's their loss (their = ubisoft) anyways splinter cell has always been a PC game for me
Coming to the PS3 isn't the issue and it isn't even the Creative Director's decision. When the board of Directors looks at a game that is two years behind schedule with double the original budget and it doesn't sell like mad then they are going to demand two things. First they are going to want a pound of flesh then they are going to want to recoup the investment...and that is just for starters. And therein lies the rub. Splinter Cell games have never been super blockbusters. They sell okay but they do not bring down the house. The first game in the series was the only one to have truly respectable sales and that was way back last gen. Creative Directors have no part in the big picture. I am not saying Conviction is coming to the PS3. Not at all. I am saying that Creative Directors have no say so in such decisions and money rules the day when it comes to such directions. The more they try to out gun Kojima the further they fall behind...
Don't care about Conviction after the demo proved my suspicions that they completely bastardized Splinter Cell. They changed everything and took out what made the games so great, this keeps happening to all the big franchises this-gen, I really hate it. Check this piece of work out, it's EXACTLY what's wrong with Conviction all rolled up into one sweet gif: http://i42.tinypic.com/f1fe...
Double agent port to PS3 was an absolute disaster, cut to shreds. Seeing as though they cant even seem to get this to run all that great on 360 and its an 'exclusive', God forbid the very idea they would then ALSO port it onto PS3 badly. Its probably better off its not coming to PS3.
But after watching these videos( correct me if I'm wrong) it sort of looks like a metal gear solid for noobies. I'm mean, it looks like you have "one hit kill" auto aim and Giant billboards everywhere telling you what to do and where to go.. don't the bad guys notice all of those gigantic highlighted letters on the walls?!WTF?!
im not gonna lie if it did come to the ps3 i would buy it, but to bad they saying it aint even thought im not a splinter cell fan i prefer metal gear, i would still buy it, it looks interesting
It doesn't matter whether or not if its coming to ps3 because of course we all know SC Conviction will suck anyway. All that really matters to me is that I get to play Conviction on my 360 the day it launches. JOY edit:vvvv yeah exactly Chubear, thats yet another reason it doesn't matter just look at how any of those year late ports reception has been on ps3. lol, I guess gamers naturally think of them as old news which again explains the response they get.
Ubisoft: We formally announce *fanfare* Splinter Cell: Conviction Sigma for the PS3!!! Gaming community: .. but didn't you say Splinter Cell Conviction will not be on the PS3? Ubisoft: Why yes, we did and if you look at all the stuff we added to Splinter Cell Conviction for the PS3, it's like it's a whole other game. :D Gaming community: ... -.-
"Our lead programmer was talking about it the other day and he said that when you’re focusing only on one platform you can really fine-tune everything for that platform." Then why the hell is the game displayed in 576p, oh, because it was focused on two machines(360/pc). besides with the quality games im getting now, why the hell would i want to play a game that would render the power of my console and and quality of my 42"tv pointless. wen i play a game i wanna be more like... "damn, holy sh**, wow, look at the size of that titan!!!" instead of "....................... .. :) ... :/ ... :( ... >:( ...? "
Not to spoil your little bash party you've got going on here but I really liked the demo. The controls are really fluid, the graphics look great(especially the awesome lighting that SC games are known for), the settings were cool as well with multiple ways to enter the building etc. What I also liked was that if you are detected you have a chance to escape and hide whereas in former SC games you were pretty much dead if anyone noticed you. They have taken what was great about the SC franchise and made it more accessible, which I think is awesome. There will always be people hating though, since it's not exactly the same as the older SC games. Why not go play the older SC games if you miss them so much? Or wait for a Final Fantasy VII remake or do whatever it is you do when you don't spend you're time complaining about games that evolve.
AngryFork - that is quite a scary clip for fans of stealth games. Looks like they completely turned it into a "Bourne." They better not do the same to Deus Ex 3 or Thief 4
@morganfell, You are absolutely right. The creative director may have a say but that decision is not theirs to make. Just like FF13 Versus, nomura may have a say in it to voice his opinion but ultimately it will be the shareholders that will tell Wada to turn it Multi-Platform. I really see Square-Enix developing for 360/PC/ps3 as they have more exclusive games for 360/PC than any other current gen console. Wait I have 2 launch date and two falcon 360's 4 Gaming PC's that can play Crysis on med to high with over 40 frames, the good one can churn out Crysis with over 60 frames on high to very high and a launch date 60 gb grillstation3. Guess I am covered. Hacked ps3, hacked ps2, hacked DSLite, hacked Xbox, hacked psp, am I missing anything?
as for now MGS4 is still the best!
is easy to read between the lines.
Well Sky the difference there will be the sales. Versus on the PS3 will actually outsell Splinter Cell on the 360. Also you have the PC version of SCC which will be pirated because it isn't on the PS3 and as a protest to the moronic DRM. The other major, and I mean prominent issue is cost projection. Versus has stayed close to it's budget whereas SCC has more than doubled. 10% is the norm for allowable over runs but SCC is far and above that.
In the words of Swiper the Fox: AWW MAN!
Hiphopgamer already called this sh*t.
Yeah Ubisoft! HipHop Gamer already guessed this!
HHG just throws sh!t at the wall and sees what sticks. If something does stick then you get his stupid tirades about how he was right all along. If he was wrong he won't speak of it again.
The first person that came to mind was Pachter. ;)
"HHG just throws sh!t at the wall and sees what sticks." Best analogy ever.
Could be The best game in The series. IT's really a shame That There is no ps3 version of The game.
Conviction comes nowhere close to beating Chaos Theory. On top of that, the cover mechanics in Conviction are very clunky and you can't simply switch cover like Uncharted where you just press the analog stick & a button. In Conviction you have to target cover and then move to it if you want to move from cover to cover. To me it just seems Conviction is more suited for the PC. Anyways, Conviction will come to the PS3 with extras & fixed bugs and we all know it will happen. Just like the first Bioshock when everybody denied it & even the GTA4 DLC when everybody denied it (especially when Microsoft paid $50,000,000 for it). If those came to the PS3 then surely a series that has always been every other console will be the same with this game too (unless Sony planned to do something like make Assassin's Creed 3 a PS3 exclusive with exclusive beta access to the next Rainbow Six game). But it really doesn't matter because much like Ghost Recon, Ubisoft has already ruined the Splinter Cell series and both Splinter Cell & Ghost Recon are mediocre franchises.
" Now, are we going to see the next versions of Splinter Cell on other platforms? That I can’t answer, but there’s no reason why we wouldn’t go on other platforms. And other versions of Splinter Cell have been on multiple platforms." All of them have been Multiplatform. So, I'd be surprised if SC:C didn't make a "jump" to the PS3. Jump out
Poor ps3 twats all there hopes dashed out the window. Now they have no games to look forward too except that embarrassing Dildo.
pew pew pew... go catch some balls bot
demo was alright for me but I'm overall dissappionted with this games graphics we are in 2010 and I've yet to see one xbox 360 exculsive game that looks as good or better than Uncharted 2.I'm actually glad this is not a multiplatform game maybe they did it this way so they can utalize the ps3 with out gimping anything just a thought
It is actually multi plat, just not on the PS3.
Know i hope hiphopsonyfanboy will stop saying it coming to ps3 soon
Just like Hiphopgamer already said!
NOT COMING TO PS3... SO?
so yeah I don't think any PS3 owners will be losing any sleep over this.
As long as it's still on PC, I couldn't care any less.
yeah i'm going to file this under not an issue.
demo wasnt amazing im a purist when it comes to splintercell and none have ever been as good as the orignial.
Loved the demo. I hope it does eventually come out on the PS3 so more people can play it. Pc for me though.
ubi comments i know that they have before but then they later have comments of it being possible on ps3 and stuff goo to hear now i hope this doesn't come up later
This is Ubi's way of asking for $$$. I'm still picking up Conviction though. Looks to be awesome. Loved the original, PT, and CT.
I was planning on picking up the PC version when it was released, but I played the demo at a friend's house and didn't like it too much. Plus there is no Spies vs Merc? That is just a crippling blow. I'll probably end up picking up a copy when the price goes down to around $20-$30.
IDC If i want action god of war uncharted 2 if i want stealth i will have mgs4 and soon socom 4 in the fall with online also may i add this game will be for fans but don't expect this to move consoles cause it wont lol and the preorders isn't as high as i expected i won't say it wont be a great game cause im sure it will be but don't expect this to move consoles or cause massive articles about the best game of 2010 or action unless there are desperate people who want hits on their unknown gaming website.
I'm wondering why any PS3 owner would care? It's not on any PS3 owner's radar. Splinter What, last time I had a splinter it wasn't fun but with all this splinter talk I could use a tweezer :P
Them why has every comment here come from a sony loyalist? Make sense?
So it would make sense for us to let them know that they don't need to worry about us. Unless they plan on stepping up their game and developing with the big dogs and pushing boundaries.
Just like the GTA Episodes, the Fallout 3 DLC, Bioshock, Mass Effect 1 & 2, Tales of Vesperia, Ninja Gaiden 2, Star Ocean 4 (LOL @ the people who told me this last one one of all things was never ever happening - FUUUUUUUU*K YOUUUUU b!tches, I was right because I'm not insane, you failed because you are), Assassin's Creed (1) and many MANY MAAAAAAAAAANY MORE.
all splinter cell series already Flop on playstation platform cheap graphics + bad selling = playstation if u searching for real and originally sam fisher --> Only on Xbox BTW splinter cell conviction demo best demo ever on XBL best rated on xbox live edit : waiting for biggest and history of playstation platform on my xbox 360 MGS:Rising loool no more PS3 exclusive so sad
DVD 9 FTW!!!......83
Zero are you mildly retarded or do you just make it seem that way so we feel sorry for you? I dont want SC i never have wanted SC and if it did come to the ps3 for free i would probably still pass on it you would too if you had tried the demo its about as good as denied ops and that was a pile of steaming donkey crap.
STFU about God Of War. You are the biggest moron on this site apart from GR8 Douche. GOW3 is too good for your feeble mind to understand. Even on easy it takes at least 9 hours to complete. Stop spamming this site. People like you ruin gaming. You're telling people to grow up when you are the one CONSTANTLY spamming GOW3 articles and saying that its crap. You say the same stuff over and over again. 18+?! Well maybe you shouldn't have one because obviously by your grammar and the way you act, YOU are under 18. Grow up you troll. F*ing kids these days....... As far as Splinter Cell Conviction goes, this is day one for me. It looks great. I wasn't TOO impressed with the demo, but I got the game for free. I'm gonna give it another shot and play the sh*t outta this game!
game was a sh!tstorm to begin with...delayed numerous times, etc. Don't need it in my ps3...not worthy.
thanx too blu-ray make GOW III 5hrs gameplay + 720p + 40fps lool Gears of war 2 1080p + 10hrs gameplay thanx too DVD9 edit : hey Lionhead did u try splinter cell conviction demo too say crappy graphics ???? first grow up than buy xbox 360 because xbox not allowed kids under 10yrs only for18+ when u buy xbox 360 after 8yrs i wish u try splinter cell conviction demo first on xbox live ....OK
Wtf is fbs? I REALLY don't think you should be talking since it's obvious you dunno what the hell you are even talking about LOL Oh btw, Splinter Cell=576P 2xAA what crappy graphics thanks to DVD9 Way to fail Edit: I actually do have an Xbox 360, I'm not a FANBOY like you. From the looks of your grammatical errors I'd say you are the 10 yr old not me. So YOU grow up, your comment history is nothing but making fun of the PS3. Talk about childish.
Dont't forget you ultra compressed textures
Gears part : 1080p... 1080P!!! 10 EFFING 80P !!!! GoW part : 5 Hours ? Dude grow a d1ck then come back here
Let the Sony exclusive barrage continue please...
I don't want it on PS3... yet alone 360... keep that garbage!
it will come to ps3 for sure,the same thing was said about bioshock.
LOL, this game will score in the high eighties to low nineties. Can't wait for the review of this game in April and see the reaction of the PS3 fanboys. Already pre-paid my version. Glad I have both system so I don't have to worry about this..is it coming..is it not..BS.
Typical fanboy who talks about other fanboy's and we're all pretty sure u own both systems..not really because that would explain why u exactly said "PS3 fanboys" right? Bottom line is u like this game and u dont like people bashing it but the harsh reality is that its not going to be good. If u want to bet ign gives it around a 7.5 score then I'll put my money on it.
LOL the Xbox Defense Force has invaded N4G! Why do you want to see the reactions of PS3 fanboys huh? Just enjoy your games! Do scores and sales really mean that much to you guys? Wow.
Keep the [email protected]#king Splinter Cell game. I have the definitive stealth game and it's called Metal Gear Solid 4.
not getting any of slayers money, maybe next year
Oh and by the way, nice job hiding your fanboyism while making fun of other fanboys...
The splinter cell series is best played on the 360.If it was on the ps3 that version will tank in sales like Rehash of war 3
With that erroneously-idiotic view, one would think you would try to get all the best you can get and be fully behind the Nintendo Wii and would have an avatar of Reggie Fils-Aime. But no, you simply have a hard-on for Microsoft in typical pathetic basement virgin nerd fashion. Rehash of war 3 huh?...idiots like you can't even stay fresh and clever, and 500,000 units sold on launch day solely in the Americas is not tanking in sales.
